A $50 Bargain: Patriot’s Viper V570 RGB Gaming Mouse
A couple of weeks ago, I took HyperX’s $50 Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse for a spin, and overall, I was impressed. Ultimately, though, there was little that could go wrong, considering the fact that the mouse is simple in design and function – it doesn’t even include a software package. Heck – it didn’t even include RGB lighting (for shame!).

Fortunately, for those who don’t want to spend anything more than $50 but prefer something with a generous serving of “bling”, there’s another option: Patriot’s Viper V570. The company calls this mouse one of the most “versatile” on the market, and taking half a second to look at it can back that assumption up.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X Review
The mega-tasking era starts here. Is Threadripper one of the best CPU names of all time? AMD certainly thinks so, and the company is in high spirits, having introduced competitive Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 processors and following-up with Threadripper CPUs that tear apart the nearest Intel equivalent in multi-threaded workloads.

Ryzen 9 would have been the more obvious branding choice, but Threadripper is testament to AMD's renewed confidence. The firm freely ridiculed Intel's alternatives at a recent press event, claiming that Core i9-7900X's $999 price tag is a sign of AMD Threadripper bringing value to the market prior to release.

Should a company who has failed to live up to consumer expectations in recent generations be quite so cocky? That's up for debate, but this is the first time in a long while that AMD has been competitive, and with Threadripper we reckon it has done enough to sit back, put its feet up, and enjoy seeing Intel beaten into second place... for the time being.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X And 1920X Review: Unleashing The Multi-Threaded Beast
AMD’s unrelenting attack on the desktop CPU market continues today, with the official launch of the company's beastly Ryzen Threadripper processors. If, by some cruel joke, you are unfamiliar with Threadripper, it is AMD’s premium, high-end, many-core desktop processor, that leverages the same Zen microarchitecture that debuted with the Ryzen 7 series a few months back. The flagship chip in the initial AMD Ryzen Threadripper line-up packs 16 physical processor cores and supports 32 threads through the use of SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading).

To date, the largest number of cores supported on standard desktop platforms, without resorting to enterprise-class processors or dual-socket setups was 10. With Threadripper, AMD hopes to change the desktop computing paradigm and better address the needs of hardcore enthusiasts, content creators, and other creative professionals with a processor equally adept at gaming as it is churning through highly-parallel, compute intensive workloads...

Corsair Neutron NX500 800GB review: new NVMe from the USA
Corsair introduces a new PCI-Express SSD that has to compete in the high-end segment. Previously this turned out to be quite the challenge: a lot of other companies with the same plan could not compete with the solid products of Samsung in this segment.

Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Case Review
When Fractal Design offered up yet another, as-of-yet unannounced product to add to their lineup my curiosity was piqued. What else could they possibly have in store? All I had was a product name: the Meshify C. I could hazard a few guesses as to the nature of this new case: ATX, based on the Define C no doubt, with a dressing of mesh – perhaps an Arc Midi successor? Follow along as Benchmark Reviews investigates this new direction from Fractal Design.

Fractal Design Meshify C Review
A new look for the typically reserved Swedish case manufacturer. There is so much commonality between PC chassis that it can be difficult for any one manufacturer to stand out from the crowd. Swedish outfit Fractal Design has managed to carve out something of a niche by putting forth an array of cases that offer the mix of simplicity and functionality you come to expect from Scandinavian design.

The firm's Define Series has proven particularly popular, but the staid aesthetic and white accents aren't for everyone. In an effort to jazz-up its portfolio, Fractal has recently added a tempered-glass option to its mid-range Define C, and is today expanding the product line with the introduction of the Meshify C.

Fractal Design Meshify C Review
With the Meshify C, Fractal Design has added the next case to their portfolio. The interior strongly reminds of the Define C, which has been available for quite a while now. Apparently the Swedes have reworked the exterior, which is why we're finding an unusual lot of mesh on this case, allowing for excellent airflow. Overall we're curious to find out how this case is going to perform in our review and apart from that we want to know more about the pricing.

Intel Core i7 7820X Linux Benchmarks
While the June launch of Intel's X-Series processors took the attention with the top-end Core i9 7900X Skylake-X and Core i7 7740X Kabylake-X processors, coming in several hundred dollars less than the i9-7900X is the i7-7820X, which still packs a very hard punch. We have now received a Core i7 7820X for Linux testing at Phoronix and are beginning with a round of benchmarks on Ubuntu.

Origin PC EON15-S Review: A Svelte, Sensibly-Priced Gaming Laptop
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment.

That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook we're looking at today.

WD My Passport SSD 1TB
When it comes to data storage there are all different form factors and options. If you have a huge computer and don’t need to transport the data you can just toss a hard drive in and you are good to go. I take advantage of network attached storage for most of the data around the house but I also used a few flash drives for on the go. But when you need more space the thumb drive options get expensive, huge, and they aren’t exactly fast as well. So you are left with a portable hard drive but again speeds are terrible. Well recently SSDs have been
taking it into the portable market and the WD My Passport SSS really caught my eye to be paired with my Ultrabook for when I’m on the go and between test benches around the office. With a small form factor and a Type-C connection, it looks to be what need but first today I want to put it to the test and see how it performs.
